NWR: Dancing with the Stars

Just curious, anyone watching it? I've seen little bits of previous seasons, but this is the first time that I'm watching it from the beginning. Mainly because Kristi Yamaguchi's on it and she's from Fremont, so I'm excited. It's a lot of fun and I can see why there's so much appeal. IMO it's more exciting than Idol right now (it's fitting they did a Beatles night now that Paul McCartney finalized his divorce, but he probably would've cringed at most of the singers).

And to tie this into wedding stuff - I liked Monica Seles and Priscilla's hair tonight for potential wedding 'dos.

Idol was silly last night. I don't know why they did Beatles songs two weeks in a row. I'm not liking the themes this year--they did the 60s, 70s and 80s for the top 24, and now two weeks of Beatles? Last week was much better, but really, what did they expect for this week? Obviously everyone would have picked their most suitable Beatles song the first week.

I love the show- so corny but I love it.
Kristy did well- ice skating is graceful so it's not a surprise. Priscilla and Marlee were the surprises; both did well. Priscilla's surgical 'look' is difficult for me to ignore and I wish women wouldn't do this....

So we are watching and during the breaks trying to practice (amidst loud protesting from the FI). Our fox trot looks nothing like what they all did. I don't normally watch this show but as a former competitive figure skater I had to watch kristy. Its going to be her and Mario till the end.

I watched bits and parts while doing the eliptical. I think it's sorta unfair that some of the star contestants were exposed to more dance training in the past than others.
* Sigh * Just wish that we can even dance 1/2 as well as they did for our 1st dance.

Kristy did do well, and I like her okay -- but I worry that they gave her the highest scores EVER in the history of DWTS for the first round. That's sometimes an upset for "ringer" or "bust". Worries me.

I thought Marlee did great and Shannon Elizabeth underwhelmed me. Mario was really rocking on Monday night, so I'm curious to see how well they do next week and we'll lose TWO couples!

I'm pretty sure she can feel the vibrations due to the loud music, and they said in practice that her partner makes sure to stomp a bit harder on the beats. It's pretty amazing what she was able to do. I don't know, I know ice skating is graceful and all, but that really only helps the upper body. The lower half and the legs are pretty different. I was also impressed with Priscilla, but yeah, her face scares me.

I like Kristi... I saw her once with her family and little girl having lunch at E&O Trading Company in the city. But I really admire Marlee... she danced so well especially when she couldn't even hear the music. That's pretty amazing!
